BUT the same drummer who plays on Bix and His Gang's "Margie", "Rhythm King" and "Louisiana" also plays on the Trumbauer dates of October 5th, 1928 (that produced "The Love Nest", "Sentimental Baby", "The Japanese Sandman" and "High Up On A Hilltop") and September 20th, 1928 ("Love Affairs" and "Take Your Tomorrow"). And you said last year that "According to Evans and Evans the arranger for the Sep 20, 1928 recordings of "Take Your Tomorrow" and "Love Affairs" was Lennie Hayton. No instrument listed in Trumbauer's ledgers for Hayton because he did not play any, he was the arranger and got paid $50 for the arrangements" So if he didn't play the drums on this Trumbauer session, it follows that he isn't the drummer on the Bix and His Gang session of September 21, 1928.
